Jets drafting record has been quite one dimensional so far. I can never see Jets drafting a guy like Jakob Silfverberg, a guy that Ottawa drafted in the 2nd round a few years ago who now looks like top 6 guy. Frk who was drafted by the Wings in the second round just a few spots after the Jets is doing very well in the QMJHL. I'm not using the benefit of hindsight here to argue that the Jets should have drafted Frk, my point is that looking at the Jets drafting record, guys like Silfverberg and Frk wouldn't even be considered . I hope the Jets are a little more diverse in their drafting and consider skill players too. They got lucky this season with Trouba, otherwise passing up on Forsberg would have been remembered for a very long time.
I don't think it is luck in regards to Trouba.
